This graph represents the share of French people who had already questioned the advice given by their doctor after consulting an alternative medicine practitioner in 2019. It shows that the majority of respondents, 75 percent, did not doubt the diagnosis or traetment given by their doctor.

Alternative medicine, also called complementary or integrative medicine among others, designates therapeutic practices residing outside classical medical science which originated from oriental, ancestral or innovative traditions.
